Family Managed Respite (FMR)
Family Managed Respite (FMR) provides family caregivers a break in ongoing care for children and young adults, under age 22, who have an identified mental health condition or developmental disability.  Respite can be used as needed, either planned or in response to a crisis.  It can also be used to create a break for the normal routine for the child with a disability. 

To apply for services, please contact the Designated Agency in your area.
